is incompetent or she purposely misled. the reason simon and obama administration are so defensive on the your show today right now is because for months they have been gloating about how barack obama kept us safe and there have been no terrorist attacks on his watch. well, guess what, there was just a terrorist attack on his watch. we got hit at u.s. embassy, the first american ambassador killed since 1979 on his watch on the anniversary of september 11, 2001. this stuff about how george bush let 9/11 happen and barack obama kept us safe and no catastrophic attacks on his watch, the only reason we haven't had another 9/11 on the watch because a bomb on plane malfunctioned on detroit. that was not foiled terrorist attack. the bomb malfunctioned. they got through our defenses and the fact is that as steve hayes has been reporting today in the, in the "weekly standard", they lied about that one too. three days after that attack they said it was a lone, a lone man when we now know it was an attack by al qaeda in the arabian peninsula. said after times square bombing it was a lone man acting alone

for growth. really, what we're seeing in r.i.m.'s numbers are how well it's doing at playing defense. we know that part of their strategy is discounting their products, hoping they can create somewhat of a moat around them and give them time to get blackberry 10 out. seems that defensive strategy is working better than a lot of people expected. their average selling price is not down as much as people expected. a number of analysts expected them to do worse than that $2.5 billion number. they got up to 2.9. what we're seeing here is the the defensive strategy. it remains to be seen now that the iphone 5 is out and the samsung galaxy iii is out in the channel. >> all right, john. thank you so much. stock up big, 14% higher on r.i.m. up next, europe is a mess. the u.s. and china are slowing down. where is global growth coming from? bob hormats is with me. >>> then, it seems like a number of americans are learning a bad habit from washington. we'll tell you which one next. e, brochures, posters copies of my acceptance speech. great! it's always good to have a backup plan, in case i get hit by a

issues, attacking the president on sequestration, the looming defense budget cuts effectively linking defense and national security to the economy which has been his primary message. the campaign has been flooding reporters with numbers and he mentioned them today, suggesting that sequestration cuts would effectively have an impact on 168,000 jobs, costing 168,000 jobs in the state. he said 136,000, 68,000 among small businesses specifically. and he was here with people in this critical battleground who he said have been to battle before. these are people in the military community, a lot of veterans here at american legion hall where he was speaking that he hopes will support his message of american strength through strength and not through weakness militarily. >> i have been a little puzzled by the campaign's posture on this because it was a republican and democratic agreement, the automatic triggers for these automatic cuts from sequestration if they didn't agree to a budget deal, and they didn't agree to a budget deal so this was something that the president and john boehner agreed

the appeal now the defense can appeal the judge's ruling which says certain statements can come in. it's unbelievable that a child who isn't old enough or big enough to sit in the front seat of a car, can understand i have a right to keep my mouth shut and not do it. >> we always talk about people going into a courtroom and whether they're competent to stand trial. do they understand the charges against them and can they assist in their defense. is that kid competent according to those standards? >> according to the standards, the judge found that probably -- probably what the judge found was he didn't have to be told and there wasn't a determination that needed to be made whether or not he understood he had a right to keep his mouth shut because he either wasn't in custody yet or wasn't being interrogated. are you in custody and are you being asked a question that, if you answer it, it would incriminate you. >> i can't understand how a child can understand the process. you have understand the process to be in a courtroom to start with. clearly this thing has been moving along the pipe

, i'm going to have to look that up. oh!" (laughter) here's romney making a defense of his low personal tax rate two months ago. >> my view is i have paid all the taxes required by law. i don't pay more than are legally due. and, frankly, if i had paid more than are legally due i don't think i'd be qualified to become president. >> jon: i mean, heck, if i overpaid my taxes who knows what else i'd overdo. instead of pardoning one turkey, i may pardon all the turkeys. (laughter) so anyhow, paying more than the legally required amount of taxes would disqualify one from the presidency. that was two months ago. flash to this weekend. >> according to that 2011 return, romney donated $4 million to charity but only claimed a deduction of $2.25 million. he reduced his deduction and in essence paid more in taxes, the campaign said, to conform to his earlier estimate that he paid a 13% rate in 2011. >> jon: oh, charlie-- (laughter). oh, charlie. oh, charlie, you're fading on us, charlie! first we lost algernon and now you, charlie?
